Kudos to Stetson Walker’s mom. From one parent to another, you have really raised a fine young, well-mannered gentleman. I know this not the way to kick off an intriguing opening paragraph which should lure you into reading the rest of this article, but … the point I am about to make is that my first impression was “this recording artist is really young”. Then, you listen to his music and suddenly you are hearing a polished and mature singer that lands somewhere between Randy Travis and George Strait. Wow! I was really impressed.
So, I guess I could go on and on about what a nice young man Stetson Walker seems to be. But honestly, that is not his power. Listen to him sing. Hear what he is producing in the recording studio. Observe his stage presence, and you begin to understand that Stetson Walker is a talent to be reckoned with in the County Music industry. When we visited and talked about his mom singing background for Willie Nelson, I asked him what it was like growing up around those musicians. He had a number of things to say, but the first thing he told me was, “if you can’t be Willie Nelson, you certainly want to be in his camp.” The boy gets it.
We promised on our Podcast that we would post his video on our blog. Stetson talked with me continuously off mic and told me how much fun he had getting to be on set for this production. I asked him if the girl in the video was really his girlfriend. He said no, that she was just an actress brought in by the production company. But then he grinned and said, “She was nice though.”
Stetson Walker is a welcome guest now in our Episode 46 of the Free Range Texan Podcast as well as in the future. Stetson and I both hope you enjoy.
